    Almost There...

    Had my state evaluations this morning for Firefighter I & II, and my evals for HAZMAT awareness and ops last Saturday. I was a little nervous going in to it, but knocked it out. Now all I have left is to make 2 trips to Jefferson City to take my written tests. I have four tests to do and they...

    Got Dispatched on My FIrst Fire Today!

    Got dispatched to a brush fire today. A fella was burning some leaves and it got out of control; it spread about 25-30 feet into the woods. Luckily there was almost no wind today or it would have been much worse. Not a huge deal, but my adrenaline was through the roof. Now that the...

    Almost lost my Dad today.

    Got a call about 0900 hrs from my step-mother saying my Dad was on the way to the ER in an ambulance. The medic told me the had to defibrillate him. When the DR finally came out he told us the LDA was completely occluded and he'll have to come back in a few weeks to have some others that were...

    I got a call from the Assistant Chief with Redings Mill Fire Department today. He said the were very interested in bringing me on. I have to make 3 training meetings and then I will start my probation. I just got back from my first one tonight :-). It feels good to know that they choose me...

    Blowing Off Some Steam.

    I haven't been on as much lately due to starting fire academy (I feel like I constantly have my nose in a book), but try to stop by in the evenings to at least browse through some of the posts. It's been a rough month. I have been trying to get back in shape and things are going ok with that...

    Keepsake From Father.

    When my father was in the Navy he and a bunch of the guys from his boat helped build some houses for Habitat for Humanity. He said Janet Rudy from Rudy Farms had 500 of these knives made. He got one for me and one for my brother. It will go into the safe until my son starts his family...

    Summer Sangria

    Hopefully I can do this justice; this is my first try at a review. This is a blend by pipeinhand. To start of the smell out of the bag is great. Sweet but not sickly sweet; it brought back memories of being a kid. While smoking (1 bowl in cob and 1 in my meer) I was getting light fruit...

    New Pipe Zippo.

    The nimrod lighter I have is a pain in the butt, and I have been looking for a zippo for when it is windy. Finally found one I like.

    Coffee Flavored Tobacco?

    When I smoked cigars more regularly some of the ones I really enjoyed were coffee flavored. Does anyone know if there is a pipe tobacco like this?

    Angry Enough to See Red.

    This story I just read has me so angry I can barely think straight. I sickens me to see what our so called justice system is doing. Please give this a read and consider signing the petition on behalf of the young woman the article is about.

    My Birthday is Tomorrow.

    I'll be 26 tomorrow. I have a sitter for my son so I think I am gonna load a couple pipes and head to the range to do some shooting. My wife and I have plans to go out tonight and celebrate; a couple drinks and good times with the family.

    Double Edged Razors?

    I have been thinking about trying out DE shaving. The process looks interesting and more enjoyable thank just using the electric. I was wondering if anyone here could suggest a relatively inexpensive razor and blades, or maybe has one they would be willing to get rid of.

    Crazy Guy that Runs into Burning Buildings.

    Some of you know that I am an EMT. I just spent most of the day at the college and enrolled for the fire academy. Classes start August 20 so I may not be on as much, but I will make sure to drop in when I can. I am very excited can't wait to get started.

    I hope I am not stepping on any toes here. I read this a few minutes ago and thought everyone would be interested. Next H&H blend by you?.

    Completely Disgusting!

    I just got a call from a friend of mine; apparently the[y] are doing bus tours of the path of destruction from the Joplin tornado. They even had the bad taste to stop in front of a rebuilt house and yell questions at the lady who was outside watering her new rose bushes.

    Don't Know if I Can Do It.

    I'm going to try to put a hold on PAD and TAD for a little while. I have some parts I've wanting to get for one of my 1911's, some more stuff for reloading, new holster and gun belt, etc. Sometimes it sucks having so many hobbies.

    Nice to See Some Justice.

    I just read this and being a father can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing. Justice

    Stanwell Pipe.

    Some of you may know that I got a Stanwell for Father's Day. I have posted a pic already, but here it is again for all the pipe porn addicts. Of course the first thing I did was toss the filter, but I was wondering, how many of you use the adapter? I have it in right now, but seems to me that...

    The Wife Told Me to Pack my Bags...

    Got a Little Creative.

    1/2 H&H Virginia Spice, 1/2 AJ's VaPer, to that I added 1/5 to 1/4 Peterson Irish Flake. Smoking some right now and it is quite enjoyable. I guess it never hurts to play around a little.
